Location: For enjoying scuba diving, Panambur Beach is an ideal place which is located at a distance of just 13 km from Mangalore.
Description: Panambur Beach lies in the south of Mangalore port and it is the best place for underwater diving to explore the vicinity of sea. The name Panambur is derived from two words, Panam is a Kannada word which means money and Ur means village. There is another world lying under the sea which is completely different and far more fascinating than the world we live in and scuba diving is a recreational activity that allows you to view the incredible sea life. Tourists may see parrot fish, stingrays, white and black tip sharks, angel fish, and lion fish while scuba diving. Netrani, which is a tiny island, just 18 km away from Murudeshwar and very near to Mangalore, is another good place for tourists to experience scuba diving. Special scuba facilities, like oxygen cylinders and other gears, are available at this beach and well trained scuba divers will help you to experience the adventures of sea.
Activities: One must visit the various beaches of Mangalore to experience scuba diving because the fun of swimming and experiencing the beauty of aquatic life cannot be described in words.
